Suspension of Rules
On separate motions moved by Syed Usman Mehmood and Rana Mashhood Ahmad Khan under Rule 234 of the Rules of Procedure of the Provincial Assembly of the Punjab 1997, the House granted leave to suspend Rule 115 and other relevant rules of the Rules ibid, for taking up the following Resolutions, which were kept pending as the concerned Ministers were not present:-
Syed Usman Mehmood moved a Resolution that Medical Colleges in Punjab had the capacity to accommodate 3350 students for which almost one lac candidates appear in the entry test while merit closes at 93%. As per law, enforced in 1962, after completion of MBBS in five years, PROFF Exam was held each year, enabling students to go for house job for one year, making them eligible to appear in PPSC to obtain Government job. This whole process was managed by PMDC which had now been taken over by PMC and section 20 of its Act says that whoever passes NLE after completing MBBS would be eligible for house job otherwise their efforts would be in vain. In America and UK by passing SMLE and PLAB Exams, students were enabled to get licenses and even residency. But after passing NLE, there was no such facility in Pakistan. Retrospective legislation was never considered a good legislation hence students who were registered under PMDC had filled a surety bond. Binding them to appear in NLE was against the law and constitution. Students graduating from medical colleges across Punjab were protesting in support of their demands. The House demanded the Federal Government to immediately repeal Article 20 of the PMC Act so that the future of doctors could be secured and they could stop protest and perform their duties diligently.
Rana Mashhood Ahmad Khan moved a Resolution that thousands of Pakistani students studying in China had been facing problems since December 2019 to continue their studies in China. The Chinese Government was not issuing visas to them hence, these students were uncertain about their future. Countries around the world specifically South Korea and America had played instrumental role for their students to get back to China to continue their studies. Students from Pakistan were fully vaccinated and were ready to adopt all the SOPs set out by the Chinese Government. Students of PhD and medicine were facing more problems due to the reason that the subjects were of experimental nature and online classes did not fulfill their objective. It is the responsibility of Government of Pakistan to contact Chinese Government and try to resolve their issues as soon as possible and get this ambiguous situation clear. So that students could complete their studies from China and come back to Pakistan to serve their country and nation. It is our moral and national duty to save the future of our young generation from turning into ashes. The mover demanded the Federal Government to contact Government of China to issue visas to the affected students so that they could continue their studies.
The House was then adjourned at 05:35 p.m. to meet on Friday, October 01, 2021 at 09:00 a.m.
